Member Profile: The Inns of Aurora

March 2016

On the shores of Cayuga Lake, in the tiny village of Aurora, New York, a distinctive collection of historic inns and restaurants awaits the modern traveler. Appointed with handsome antiques and an exceptional collection of art, the properties – just 30 minutes from Ithaca – provide four-diamond accommodations, farm-to-table dining, and immersive experiences in Finger Lakes culture.

Since its launch in 2003, the Inns of Aurora has grown to encompass three boutique accommodation properties: the classic Aurora Inn offers ten guestrooms with deluxe appointments, E.B. Morgan House features bold colors and modern art in its seven elegant guestrooms, and Rowland House – opened in 2014 – serves as the ideal location for executive retreats with a state-of-the-art boardroom, private dining room, comfortable parlors, and ten stylish guestrooms. A fourth property, Wallcourt Hall, will open in May 2016 with 17 clean, modern guestrooms.

The Aurora Inn offers fresh, from-scratch farm-to-table dining in its warm, comfortable dining room – one of the few places in our region to dine with a stunning and uninterrupted view of sunsets over the lake. Across the street is the Fargo Bar & Grill, offering casual fare and a diverse and extensive list of craft beers. Dorie’s Bakery – a ten-minute walk from the Aurora Inn – is the perfect spot for a breakfast, lunch, or dinner, with homemade soups, sandwiches, and pizza, wine and beer, and elegant pastries and cakes.
